The Only Hope For Me Is You
Soot Covered Boy
The car was silent, the only sound to be heard was the occasional rock hitting the bottom of the Trans Am. Ghoul had wrapped his bandanna around his wound, stopping the bleeding. After a few more minutes we pulled up to a small shack, the outside completely covered in colorful graffiti. Poison got out of the car without saying a word, slamming the door behind him, he helped Ghoul out and walked him to the door. I followed closely behind, Poison knocked loudly, causing the thin wooden door to buckle slightly.
“Open up!” Poison shouted, “Guys it's us.” Moments passed before the door opened revealing a worried looking Pony.
“What's wrong?” He asked, Poison pushed Pony aside and walked into the dimly lit building. He set Ghoul down on a wooden stool, Ghoul seethed as he sat down, the amount of pain he was feeling was evident on his face. Poison ran a hand through his hair, and then suddenly cried out and punched the wall next to him, making all of us jump in surprise.
“Poison what's going on?” Pony asked again.
“Korse…he fucking found us. We were surrounded…Kobra.” Poison couldn't finish his sentence he fell back onto the wall, his strength failing him. He looked so defeated, I had never seen Posion not confident in himself, but right now he looked so lost. He looked broken. Pony didn't say anything, he just nodded grimly, before crouching in front of Ghoul and busying himself with tending to Ghoul's wound.
I couldn't believe Kobra was gone. He couldn't be, he just couldn't be. I had only known him for a little over a week now, but I already felt something strong over him. I felt the need to protect him, I couldn't lose him. I couldn't handle losing someone else.
The door opened again, all our heads snapped up, praying to see Kobra walk through the door. However Dr. D and Cola entered the small room, Cola looked around and furrowed our brows in confusion. “What are you guys doing here?” He looked again and noticed someone was missing, “Where's Kobra?”
No one answered, Poison looked down at his feet. His hands were balled into fists by his side. I could tell Poison was trying to keep his composure, he was trying not to fall apart. Cola repeated, “Where's Kobra?” This time his voice was stern.
I wanted to punch him, I wanted to wipe that fake look of concern off his face. He hurt Kobra, he abused the boy I had grown to care for. I saw the bruises and the look of embarrassment on Kobra’s face that morning after they had slept together.
"Korse found us. Kobra stayed behind to give us a chance to get out. The diner exploded. We don't know if Kobra got out.” Ghoul reported, Pony finished wrapping his wound, stood up, and walked over to Dr. D. Pony whispered something in Dr. D’s ear, Dr. D nodded.
Cola’s face contorted in anger, “Of course he didn't get out! Korse is the most deadly exterminator. How could you let him do that Poison? Your own brother!”
It was Poison’s turn to shout, “You think I don't fucking know that? You think I wanted him to sacrifice himself? Fuck you Cola!”
“You're a coward Party Poison! You let your little brother get killed over you!” Cola screamed his face turning red. Poison launched himself at Cola, they tumbled to the ground, Poison landed a few punches before we heard a voice call out.
“What the fuck is going on?” Everyone froze, Kobra was standing in the doorway, a look of shock plastered on his face. His whole body was covered in soot, his right side of his face was tinted red from blood, a gash stood out on his forehead. He was holding his helmet, I could see that blood was running down his arm, dripping onto the yellow helmet.
“Oh my God. Kobra!” Poison cried out and ran up to his brother. Poison wrapped his arms around Kobra tightly, “I thought I lost you!” Kobra hissed in pain, Poison took a step back.
Kobra smirked, “They can't get rid of me that easily. But Korse is pissed. I barely made it out before the explosion. The force of the blast knocked me off my bike, giving me this bad boy,” Kobra motioned to the cut on his forehead, “I stole one of the Dracs bikes and booked it out of there. Korse doesn't like to lose. He is going to be hunting us down.”
Poison nodded, “Alright, well as soon as we can we will start moving. We can't stay in one place for too long.” Poison walked over to Ghoul and began talking with him.
I looked at Kobra, he was alive. I hadn't lost him, he smiled at me. I was about to say something when Cola grabbed Kobra's hand. “C'mon Kobra, let's get you cleaned up.” Cola lead him away, Kobra looked at me one last time before entering another room. He begged me with his eyes to intervene, to stop Cola, but I looked down at my shoes. What was I supposed to say? Kobra wasn't my boyfriend…hell I hadn't even known him for that long. I was no match for someone like Cola.
But I couldn't ignore the burning of jealousy in the pit of my stomach as Cola closed the door behind them. I wanted Kobra more than I have ever wanted anything, I wanted to hold him close and kiss his lips. I wanted to clean his wounds and comfort him when he was hurt. I wanted to be anything he needed.
